Bob Jr. has been with Ellis since 1997. His great-great grandfather, Wynn Edward Ellis, founded the company. “As the fifth generation of the company I want to carry on the successful traditions of our business, but also always challenge our people to be the best they can and to provide the best products and support possible to our customers. My vision is that we build a world class legacy business that will go on for another 100 years.”
